Creating Outdoors

June is a perfect opportunity to celebrate the great outdoors! I love being outside, and there’s nothing better than doing a little crafting and creating to go along with it. Some of the ideas are great for kids, others are better for adults, and some are fun for all ages! If you’ve got an outdoor themed creation, share it below!

If you’re a gardener, you’ll enjoy plant pokes.

Try this “permanent” sand sculpture.

If they’ve got to catch those bugs, might as well make a craft out of it!  Don’t forget to release the bugs though.
